A petition has been filed against Prabhakar Adhikary, deputy secretary at the Ministry of Information and Communication (MOIC), by his office colleagues. The case has been filed at the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA). Adhikary's colleagues accuse him of abusing his authority to amass illegal wealth and of turning his office into a centre of illegal activities. Adhikary is chief of the frequency division.
Earlier Adhikary was posted at the airport under the Civil Aviation ministry and at that time he was in league with many gold smugglers. His colleagues have collected proof of his illegal activities while he was working there and have handed this over to the CIAA.
